Hello Roger,
I'm in Oakland & I'd be happy to send you a disaster radio node
module/board (we don't have cases) though I'm not sure how much shipping
will be...probably not too much.
Is your LoRa drone project on github or publicly available by any chance?
It sounds very interesting.
Perhaps we could setup a jitsi meet & discuss possible collaboration.
